Sure, you head to the slopes for the fresh powder and long runs, but lately ski towns such as Aspen and Park City have turned into quite the sartorial scenes. Home to the occasional Kardashian and It girl alike, if it’s not us then it’s them, in their bikinis and winter-white boots, telling you that the ski season is officially upon us.
When hitting the slopes, it can be hard to balance functionality and fashion. We suggest pairing Cordova’s ultra-chic full-body jumpsuit with Zeal’s futuristic mirrored goggles for that perfect marriage. If curling up by the fire aprés-ski style is more your cup of hard cider, cozy up in the Elder Statesman’s double-layered cashmere knit. Should you decide that it’s time to hit the town shops, Max Mara’s classic teddy-bear coat and Manolo Blahnik’s leather boots are what to build your style—or perhaps your next Instagram post—around. We predict you might even give the aforementioned a run for their money. For a flash of color, try on Missoni’s knit drawstring gloves, stitched for warmth and winter wonder. Whether you prefer downhill or downtime, we consider the below a one-stop shop to this winter’s chicest ski and aprés-ski styles.
